Saffron BS and JCT Contract


Recommended Posts

My mortgage advisor is in the process of getting us an agreement in principle from Saffron BS. They say that a JCT contract is mandatory for all builds above £200k (which ours is). We don't yet have a builder as we wanted to be a bit more confident in what we can afford before we go to tender, also not in a major rush but would like to get on! 


Anyway.. my question is can anyone shed some light/experience on getting a JCT contract? Is this a straight forward request for a builder? I don't want to go with Saffron and then find I am struggling to get a builder who can offer this. We can always apply to another BS if this is not appropriate for us.

It may put off the smaller contractors 

But most established companies will expect to draw up a contract with detailed costings and timeframe 

Any builder that has a problem with this wouldn’t be worth employing
